Raising awareness of identifying PAD is important to help ensure patients get the screenings and treatments they need. We’d like to help make it easy for you to spread the word about PAD in your community by providing you with complimentary tools to help identify symptoms of peripheral artery disease (PAD).
You can download patient education collateral to use in your clinic or on your website, including a brochure and poster in both English and Spanish. You’ll also find a short video that explains PAD and includes a PAD assessment patients can complete and share their results with their provider. Additional materials are available to support education of patients in your community.
Send a request online or ask your Medtronic representative to receive printed materials.

Therapy awareness programs (TAP) are jointly conducted events that educate people in your community and expand awareness about PAD. These events are conducted as a collaboration between a treating physician and Medtronic.
If you are using Medtronic therapies and want to do more to educate in your community, send us a message to learn more about the TAP program.
If your practice includes an office-based lab (OBL), patient education is just one area where we can collaborate. We offer an extensive portfolio of products for a diverse range of specialties, as well as services such as reimbursement and coding support, medical education, and staff training.
